:boom: Quick installation

Step 1: Install Git and Conda package manager (Miniconda / Anaconda)

Step 2: Update and configure Conda

conda update conda
conda config --set env_prompt "({name}) "

Step 3: Clone this repository and change directory to repository root

git clone https://github.com/prasunroy/stefann.git
cd stefann

Step 4: Create an environment and install depenpencies

On Linux and Windows

  • To create CPU environment:
    conda env create -f release/env_cpu.yml
  • To create GPU environment:
    conda env create -f release/env_gpu.yml

On macOS

  • To create CPU environment:
    conda env create -f release/env_osx.yml

:boom: Quick test

Step 1: Download models and pretrained checkpoints into
release/models
directory

Step 2: Download sample images and extract into
release/sample_images
directory

Step 3: Activate environment

To activate CPU environment:

conda activate stefann-cpu

To activate GPU environment:
conda activate stefann-gpu

Step 4: Change directory to
release
and run STEFANN

cd release
python stefann.py

2. Editing Results :satisfied:


Each image pair consists of the original image (Left) and the edited image (Right).

:pushpin: Description of
datasets/fannet

This dataset is used to train FANnet and it consists of 3 directories: fannet/pairs, fannet/train and fannet/valid. The directories fannet/train and fannet/valid consist of 1015 and 300 sub-directories respectively, each corresponding to one specific font. Each font directory contains 64x64 grayscale images of 62 English alphanumeric characters (10 numerals + 26 upper-case letters + 26 lower-case letters). The filename format is xx.jpg where xx is the ASCII value of the corresponding character (e.g. "48.jpg" implies an image of character "0"). The directory fannet/pairs contains 50 image pairs, each corresponding to a random font from fannet/valid. Each image pair is horizontally concatenated to a dimension of 128x64. The filename format is id_xx_yy.jpg where id is the image identifier, xx and yy are the ASCII values of source and target characters respectively (e.g. "00_65_66.jpg" implies a transformation from source character "A" to target character "B" for the image with identifier "00").

:pushpin: Description of
datasets/colornet

This dataset is used to train Colornet and it consists of 3 directories: colornet/test, colornet/train and colornet/valid. Each directory consists of 5 sub-directories: _color_filters, _mask_pairs, input_color, input_mask and output_color. The directory _color_filters contains synthetically generated color filters of dimension 64x64 including both solid and gradient colors. The directory _mask_pairs contains a set of 64x64 grayscale image pairs selected at random from 1315 available fonts in datasets/fannet. Each image pair is horizontally concatenated to a dimension of 128x64. For colornet/train and colornet/valid each color filter is applied on each mask pair. This results in 64x64 image triplets of color source image, binary target image and color target image in input_color, input_mask and output_color directories respectively. For colornet/test one color filter is applied only on one mask pair to generate similar image triplets. With a fixed set of 100 mask pairs, 80000 colornet/train and 20000 colornet/valid samples are generated from 800 and 200 color filters respectively. With another set of 50 mask pairs, 50 colornet/test samples are generated from 50 color filters.
